I've been going a little nuts over the last week, because I realized I'm probably way behind on my application. I haven't written any of my essays yet (planning on starting this weekend on the primary application essays). I'm not taking the MCATs until August 5th. Even worse, I've been having a hard time getting my professors to write the promised letters of recommendation. Therefore, I haven't been able to set up a committee meeting at the pre-health office at my school; a school that is notoriously slow at getting letters and applications out to schools (some students have been known to have to wait as long as two months). When is the best time to send out the primary application, and can you do this before you actually get your MCAT scores and/or letters of recommendation? I hate to send my application in late, but I'm sort of up against the wall here (and at least it's not all my fault - a little consolation, I guess).
